After the “collapse” of capitalism and democracy in the 2060s, new drivers, known as gear shifters, deliver important luggage from remote headquarters to endangered neutral zones. Performing dangerous means of transport means fighting an aggressive faction of weapon-equipped vehicles and their megamachine bosses. Players run through the landscape of dystopia in the hope of reaching a mysterious citadel waiting to discover world-changing secrets.
In this modernized shooter experience, players should expect roguelike elements as they traverse the post-social world in a solo adventure. Take the most dangerous routes and carry out high stakes delivery missions to ensure the safe arrival of your valuable cargo – only the most skilled gear shifters will survive.
